Throughout my entire career, I have always prided myself in my ability to meet people on the ground, where they are at and walk alongside them in their journey.
I work from a person-centred perspective in which I support, encourage, and challenge my clients in a respectful, kind, compassionate manner.

I am committed to helping you connect with your inner and outer strength, so you leave counselling with greater confidence, resilience, and self-awareness.
